Plug-ins : SFX Machine RT 1.0.1 - macmusicFixes include:

- Fixed a problem whereby the DSP state in the VST version could sometimes be bad upon first loading SFX Machine RT.

- Now using single-clicks for editing text fields in hosts where double-clicks can't be detected (Max/MSP, Metro, etc.)

- "Not authorized yet" alert should now appear after the plugin graphics draw, instead of before (looks less glitchy).

- Importing an old Premiere preset while audio was running could cause a crash in the AU version.

- The preset list highlight is now removed when an old preset is imported in the VST version.

- The preset name in the presets list is now updated when an old preset is imported.

Apple : Apple's G5 vs. PC audio comparison: a joke? - macmusicDuring the most recent Keynote presentation at WWDC, Steve Jobs and Apple gave us a so-called comparative performance test with music software. And, as one might expect, the new G5 Mac won hands down!

The match was organized between a Dual G5 2GHz and a Dual Dell PC 3GHz. Since the most current version of Logic Platinum (6) doesn't run on PCs (in fact, further development of this software for the PC platform has been abandoned, as many of you are well aware of), they equipped the Dell with Cubase SX and loaded the same piece of music.

Watching the video, the number of visible tracks (both stereo and mono tracks) totals 22 audio files playing simultaneously, which does appear to correspond with the correct number when you listen to the piece. 39 users'comments
